Catholics React To Nancy Pelosi’s Statement, “She Ignores Her Catholic Faith On Abortion”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi boldly proclaimed that she is a devout Catholic during yesterday’s press conference on impeachment, and naturally people had very emotional responses to this claim.

Although she says she’s a Catholic, Nancy Pelosi supports abortion, something that Catholics (and all Christian denominations) see as a huge “no-no”. A few months ago Joe Biden was denied Holy Communion by a priest for his public stance on abortion.

Now, Jesus says in Matthew 7-

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.

“Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother’s eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Let me take the speck out of your eye,’ when all the time there is a plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

Most Christians have not voted for or supported abortion. The Bible says you will be judged for the same things you judge others over. If you judge Nancy Pelosi for supporting abortion, and you are pro-life, you’re in the right. People like twisting the Bible around to fit what they want to believe, but Jesus says it right there that you aren’t to judge others for doing the same thing you are doing. Most believers are not in favor of abortion, and a lot are active in the “pro-life” movement.

While some believe that, having been baptized as a Catholic, Nancy is in good standing with the church:

Others are quite critical of the House Speaker, such as Catholic writer Tasha Rose of Radical Mothering.

“It’s really problematic for her to say something like that,” Rose said of Pelosi’s claim that being Catholic makes her incapable of hatred. “We aren’t ‘incapable of hating’… Saying she’s opposed to hating goes against the human condition.”

Tasha explains that hating one another is a result of “the fall”, and says, unfortunately, “no one is above the ability to hate.”

Catholics on Twitter called out Pelosi for her stance on abortion as well. Seems that many are offended she claims to be a “devout” believer.

Perhaps it would have been better for Mrs. Pelosi to have simply said “yes, this whole thing is political,” instead of trying to drag the Catholic church into this mess.
